Country music will award its favorites at Sunday's 53rd annual Academy of Country Music Awards.

Dan and Shay are nominated for Vocal Duo of the Year for the fifth year in a row at this event, though they have yet to win an ACM Award in any category. It will mark her first time back on stage since an accident last November.

Sometimes I think things happen in order to make us slow down". The Best Vocal Group of the Year victor was announced before show time, as was the New Female Vocalist of the Year victor and the New Male Vocalist of the Year recipient. Meanwhile, Carrie Underwood, Jason Aldean, Miranda Lambert, Thomas Rhett, Alan Jackson, and Keith Urban are among some of the most notable performers.
